The expedition 21.8. - 25.8. 2012 was similar to the one that I did one year ago. I wrote a story about it in a Finnish radio magazine “Call of the Boulder Fields”. First night I stayed in a wilderness hut on Lake Termisjarvi and the other three nights in a tent with a sleeping bag. The weather was dry and sometimes even warm during the day time. At night the temperature dropped to zero Celsius and two nights there was some rain and snow fall. This is typical for an arctic summer. The total distance walked was about 90 km. On the first summit Muurivaara a curious young raindeer watched my operation, but I did not meet any lemmings this year. Water in the lakes is quite fresh for swimming. Thanks for all the QSOs ans spots. I did not have access to internet during the expedition and did not do self spotting.
